06-05-2016 | Wurth | Connectors, Switches & EMECH

There are many interesting applications for flexible printed circuits and flat-flex cables, however there is one problem they all have in common: FFCs and FPCs need a reliable connector base. In response, W├╝rth has extended its family of WR-FPC products with a back-lock dual-contact ZIF plug-in connector.

The simple-to-use and tool-free locking concept ensures strong holding forces. Only 1mm thick, the extremely flat plug-in connector has contacts on its top and bottom surfaces for even more flexibility in the use of flexible printed circuits and flat-flex cables.

The spacing pitch is 0.5 mm, and the connector is supplied in all standard pole numbers from 6 to 28, including a 17-pole version. The plug-in connector has a maximum ampacity of 0.5A and is capable of withstanding voltages of up to 50V alternating current. It can be operated at temperatures ranging from -40C to +105C.

All products are directly available from stock and samples are available, says the company.
